“Our father was a Nazi sympathizer, racist, anti-Semite and homophobe,” Curtis Ingraham, who is gay, wrote, as NBC News reported. “Like father like daughter?”
The list of Ingraham's attacks on the LGBT community is long. She has engaged in transphobic attacks, and once used NAMBLA, a heinous and essentially defunct group in an attempt to paint the venerable Southern Poverty Law Center as dangerous and un-American.
GLAAD notes Ingraham "has an extensive record of attacking the LGBTQ community including repeatedly calling medically necessary transgender healthcare 'child abuse,' fearmongering by comparing LGBTQ rights to incest, and using her platform to aggressively target the transgender community."
On Monday she added to that list, targeting Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, and calling him "sanctimonious and self-righteous."
Mayor Pete comes off as more sanctimonious and self-righteous here than most Evangelical Christians I've met: "Buttigieg to Pence: 'Your problem is not with me -- your quarrel, sir, is with my creator'" @CNNPolitics https://t.co/wrm13pRdtE

If that wasn't enough, Ingraham last week targeted Buttigieg on her Fox News show:
Meanwhile, Twitter was quick to respond to Ingraham's attacks. Take a look:
your gay brother called you a homophobic “monster” six months ago and your faculty advisor at dartmouth said you had “the most extreme anti-homosexual views imaginable” https://t.co/YVK5f3Y1oI

so tell us why you *really* don't like pete buttigieg and cut the bullshit— Marlow Stern (@MarlowNYC) April 8, 2019
So we can *at least* agree most evangelical Christians are sanctimonious and self-righteous? https://t.co/t8QA4rmVDk

What is it that you’re trying to say, Laura? Is there an argument there? He dropped the mic on that statement and you can’t fathom how to wrap your head around the logic, or maybe just pull your head out of your ass to begin with, you relic of the past.

One of the main problems is the phony Christians who have no compassion or real belief !! https://t.co/OepM9SvLlQ

Mike Pence fought for years to prevent many people from marrying who they love. Yet Ingraham thinks criticism of that is "sanctimonious and self-righteous"? https://t.co/rQiJFzMs42

He has been one of the few politicians that had brought many hypocrites acts to light. I’m a Christian and his words were 100% correct.

But Mayor Pete is right

Mayor Pete is spot on. Fabulous response to homophobes far and wide.

What is sanctimonious about his statement to Pence? Pence believe that being gay is an aberration and/or a lifestyle choice. Buttigieg is merely pointing out that that is incorrect. People are born gay, they don't choose it. So what's wrong with challenging Pence on this?
